Brock University is committed to providing services to support Aboriginal student success. There are a number of services available to Status or Non-Status First Nations, Métis, and Inuit students who self-identify.
Some of the benefits include tutoring services, exclusive computer lab access and lounge access, laptop lending, a resource library, and print and fax services. You may also qualify for Aboriginal specific awards, and bursaries available to First Nations, Metis and Inuit students.
How to Self-Identify
If you are a new student who has applied to Brock, you may have self-identified through OUAC (Ontario Universities’ Application Centre) application form. To self identify at Brock, please utilize the student profile my.brocku.ca . Click “My Favourites”, a new webpage should open and click “Student Profile” where you should see the option to check ‘yes’ for Indigenous status.
If you are new to Brock or AbSS, feel free to come to the Gathering Place of Good Minds (TH 145) to meet the staff and learn about our services and resources. Alternatively, you can contact the Aboriginal Support Assistant/Student Advisor, Mac Orlando (firstname.lastname@example.org), to arrange a virtual orientation to learn about the services we offer through AbSS.”
